Wonderful Stepchildren Are a Love Bonus

Douglas’s kids and Douglas and me on our wedding day 16 years ago. They are my forever loves, too.

Their father was quite the catch,

But I wasn’t sure if of me they approved.

So, when they embraced me with much love,

I was so happy and deeply moved.

They’d come to trust that I would be

Good and kind to their beloved father.

And I’d worked hard to earn their faith

Long before he and I went to the altar.

I love them as if I had given them birth,

Times we spend together are filled with joy.

Having such wonderful people in my life

Is like receiving a bonus three girls and a boy.

Fandango prompt is Catch. Word of the Day Challenge is Trust.
